Geekbench is a processor benchmarking platform that grades processors based on single-core or multi-core performances. While calculating multi-core scores, the platform runs multiple streams of instructions simultaneously per core to generate an aggregate result. The same process is applied to achieve single-core results as well. Notably, the faster a chipset fulfills the instructions, the higher is its score on Geekbench.
The Motorola Nio appeared on Geekbench (version 5.2.5) with model number XT2125-4. The listing, which was uploaded on December 29, claims that the handset has received a single-core score of 958 and a multi-core score of 2,969.
